Following the review of stillbirths and newborn deaths at Djerriwarrh Health Services, 46 hospitals across Victoria will share $1.4 million in funding to improve their fetal surveillance processes and strengthen the quality and safety of Victorian maternity wards.

Depending on their size, hospitals will receive a grant of between $10,000 and $88,000 to build their fetal surveillance capacity. The new fetal surveillance grant program will develop the skills and knowledge of all staff providing maternity care in monitoring the health of pregnant women and their unborn children.
